NGOs Getting Online With Two-Thirds Globally Using .ORG, But Wide Disparity Among Regional TLD Choices
There are wide differences globally as to the proportion of NGOs that use various TLDs. Around two-thirds of NGOs use a .org domain in South America, Africa and Asia while the number drops to under half in Australia and Oceania and Europe. In North America, the figure is 77%.
When it comes to ccTLDs, NGOs in the Australia and Oceania and European regions both record slightly over 40% of all NGOs using a ccTLD, while in all other regions the number of NGOs using a ccTLD doesn’t reach a quarter. In USA, part of North America, most NGOs would use a .org or .com with most of the ccTLD use coming from Canadian NGOs.
